Did you know that a new sci-fi series was about to premiere on The CW? I think it was a bit of a surprise to all of us! The new series, Pandora, will be premiering on Tuesday, July 16 at 8pm. Along with a first look at the poster (which you can see above), we also got this synopsis from The CW:
Set in the year 2199, PANDORA is a sci-fi action series about a resourceful young woman who has lost everything but finds a new life at Earth’s Space Training Academy where she and her friends learn to defend the galaxy from threats, both alien and human. When secrets about the nature of her own identity begin to surface, she must uncover the truth, and whether she will be humanity’s savior or the instrument of its destruction.
PANDORA is executive produced by Mark A. Altman (“Castle,” “The Librarians”), Steve Kriozere (“NCIS,” “Necessary Roughness”), Thomas P. Vitale, Karine Martin, and Chris Philip and produced by Radioactive Fishtank, Vital Signs Entertainment and Starlings Television. The cast features Priscilla Quintana as JAX (a.k.a. Pandora), Oliver Dench as Xander Duvall, Raechelle Banno as Atria Nine, John Harlan Kim as Greg Li, Ben Radcliffe as Ralen, Banita Sandhu as Delaney Pilar, Martin Bobb-Semple as Thomas James Ross and Noah Huntley as Professor Donovan Osborn.
There is still a bit of a mystery surrounding the series, since we don't have a trailer yet. The tease in the synopsis certainly seems interesting, but it really feels like this show almost came out of nowhere. With The 100 getting back to more of a sci-fi feel this season, the two shows could really pair well together for The CW this summer.
Will you be watching the first episode of Pandora?
